What is the name of your state? Ohio
Over a month ago I received a letter from a collection agency for a bill I did not incurr. The bill was addressed to me and had a case number and amount due. I called the agency because I had no idea what it was for. I then found out that it was a bill of my husbands. He had went to the Emergency room and the bill was handed over to collections. I told them that they shouldnt send the bill in my name if it is not my bill. The lady was quite rude. I just kept repeating my point. She put me on hold with no notice and then I was speaking to a supervisor. I again explained to him that I dd not incurr the bill and it should not have my name on it.. nor should I be mailed a bill for it. I was told that it could go on MY credit record and I coud be sued.. I then reiterated my point that they were NOT to send anymore bills in MY name to my house. They should address them to the person who actually owes the bill. He said he would note it on the account. Today I received another bill addressed to me and my husband received one in his name also (2 seperate letters) They are both the same amount and the same case number. I plan to call them back but I would like to know the legalities of what they have done so I dont come across like an idiot.Is there a semi form letter I can send them via Certified Mail? Thank you.
